Winning the Phillies 11-1 has created fun for fans looking for a reason to get excited about their team in the final weeks of the season. The victory kept them no more than two games behind the Cardinals for the second wild card of the National League.

Phyllis noted two more cycles in the second innings against Hamels, who threw at the Graves Park Bank for the first time since July 19, 2015, just 12 days before being traded to the Rangers until the organization began rebuilding.
Hamels' night kept turning from there. He allowed a double to Scott Canary, Roman Quinn's single rebellion and one centered to Cesar Hernandez to mark another run to start the third. Then Adam Hazley hit the ball to first-time founder Anthony Rizzo, but Hamels never covered. Another noted performance.
Hamels would not throw another pitch. It was Hamels' shortest start at the Bank since July 4, 2006, when he continued just two innings against the Padres due to a one-hour rain delay.

The Phillies maintained the game as Nola allowed three hits, one run and one walk in seven innings. He hit seven.
